Movie Info

Eighty strangers from all walks of life are ripped out of their daily lives and forced to participate in a brutal race to the death. The rules are simple; follow the arrows or you will die, step on the grass and you will die, get lapped twice and you will die. Only one participant will survive. Race or die. There can only be one winner, but who will survive and for what purpose?

PG-13,

Despite the essentially formulaic nature of the proceedings, the film does boast some nasty twists that prove galvanizing.

By the time half the contestants have been offed you may be less interested in who will win than when it will all be over.

Real suspense and shocks are MIA in a movie that's eventful but lacks the atmospherics needed to be scary.

Though the dialogue is pretty basic and the narrative dots don't always quite connect, "The Human Race," in its own gutsy, grindhouse-movie way, manages style, vision and tension.

The central gimmick is just another excuse to let the bloodletting commence in this low-budget thriller.

Instead of a grandly ghoulish dash for survival, the movie revels in ghastly behavior with a mouthbreathing concentration that's as irritating as it is worthless.

Most of the characters are either types or anonymous bodies in motion... but the handful with backstories are well played by a cast composed largely of actors with respectable and diverse TV and indie-movie credits.

This is a laughably bad movie, but an amazing drinking game waiting to happen.

The Human Race, a dreary, smeary, low-low-budget but even lower-inspiration horror flick, is likely to leave viewers rueing the craven, disappointing species into which they were born.

Utterly generic, but reasonably well-played and directed

a bleak and often bloody portrait of humanity as a plaything for drives and forces beyond its comprehension or control.

Filled with fine performances, splattery effects and an electrifying out-of-nowhere third-act twist that pushes Hough's feature debut into instant cult status.
